Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

O.K. Here's the story. I awhile back you might remember, I was selling a Jawa Supreme 3. The bike was really clean, but I couldn't get it to keep running. So I posted it here so a fellow Army member could buy it and hopefully get it back on the road. It was in so nice shape, it deserved to be back on the road!

So a Moped Army member comes over July 4th. He knew before arriving that the price was $300.00, non-negoitable.

When he arrives he tells me he definitely wants the Jawa, but he only had $280.00 with him. He promised me he would send me the $20.00 balance the following Monday, as soon as he got back home. I agreed, and he was on his way with my $300.00 Jawa that he only paid me $280.00 for. Well, needless to say here we are some 15 days and numerous e-mails later and still no $20.00! I trusted this guy ( believe me this will be the last time I trust someone) and this is how he does me. It's just not right! I will not disclose the name of the buyer at this time, but will if I don't receive my $20.00 I am owed. What do you guys think?

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

Oh come on... $20? Are you serious?

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

Dude... 20 dollars, and its a jawa.

You're lucky he gave you more than 100.

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

Fuck I'll send you the $20 just to close this thread.

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

FAIL FAIL FAIL FAIL

Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

Better than sending you a check for $20 that bounces.

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

I think you need to realize that Moped Army Members are the guys with the Logo's next to thier names, the ones who pay for the upkeep of the site, the ones who hold and go to rallies and the like.

We are just people who type on thier forum.

So maybe it was a member, but doubt it.

Proabably just another moped army POSTER.

Not the same thing.

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

Dude, Did Chris Buy it From You?

He told me he was purposely going to shortchange you, he also said he stole something from you that night

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

_believe me this will be the last time I trust someone_

Dude... you are gonna sell out your trust in the Human race and all the good trustworthy peeps for $20.00?????????????

FAIL FAIL FAIL FAIL

YOU GET A FISH BISCUIT!

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

Wait, i need to review the ethics of this as well

You sold someone a NON running Jawa 300 for 300 bucks?

OOGH

Maybe they are still wrenching on the fucking thing so they can get it going to ride to the post office with your money.

If you know who the person is and they are on here why dont you email to appologise about the jawa - I mean , ask for your money?

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

Pwned

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

I think you should post his name right now!!! Believe me anybody who's telling you it's no big deal it's only twenty dollars would probably be crying about and couldn't wait to post it on this site. You had a DEAL, he showed up with every intention of f'ing you out of $20. Then in good faith you let him take it anyway, because of all the personal connections on this forum you figured you could trust him. You owe it to everybody in the buy/sell forum to post his name! That way they will know to jack up their price when dealing with him or her.

EX.

you: I told you it was $125

a-hole: I know but that's all I was able to scrape together ( but I am such a dishonest slacker I only brought $100 on purpose)

you: Oh ok, just send me the rest (good thing I jacked it up $50)

a-hole: Hey thanks alot! ( why don't I just send you my credit cards and bank account numbers also HAHAHA)

you: alls well that ends well, I just made $25 more than I would have if I sold to one of the honest members or posters on MA

PRINT THE NAME!!!!!

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

Are you all brain dead? This has nothing to do with $20.00

This has to do with integrity and lack there of.

Do you seriously think $20.00 is going to make me or break me?

Why don't you get off of your soap boxes and put yourself in my shoes. How would you like to get ripped off. It doesn't matter if it's .20 or 20.00 it still stings!

A deal is a deal and an agreement should not be broken.

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

I agree post the name. if its that big a deal that you needed to make a post, then call them out. If it was an actual member I will pay the $20, just so I can make fun of them for paying way to much for a Jawa.

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

Me too. If it was an actual branch member that screwed ya for 20 bucks on a Jawa il paypal it to ya.

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

I am with you 110% hondalover. A deal is a deal. Honesty and integrity are two things that can't be taken from you. He or her was either born or raised without. Whether it was $20 or $2000 is of no consequence!

POST THE NAME AND LET THE LIFE LESSON BEGIN!!!

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

Let me clarify, I don't think he was an actual Branch Member. I wasn't aware there was a difference between Moped Army Posters and Branch Members, and I am willing to admit that. Just learned that today, here and now.

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

Calm down.... self-righteous freakaziods are a dime a dozen!

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

Well, I am calm but more importantly do you agree or disagree about the situation and posting the name?

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

AH freakazoid was a good cartoon lol

and all so Post the name i agree with hondalover

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

I see what your saying, money is not the issue. A deal is a deal. "That's when a poor man is wealthier than a rich man, by the value of his word" (U/K).

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

I am sorry, but I can not enforce a verbal agreement in my court of law. Please remember this next time.

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

usually these issues get resolved with a public mockery like this:

"waune oats why'd you take my money!":https://www.mopedarmy.com/forums/discuss/read.php?f=1&i=505901&t=479092

hahaha poor waune what a scammer, there where even tee shirts made hahaha

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

This is the deal, cash in hand is cash in hand!! It's your fault that you let the bike go to a stranger for 20.00 less then you wanted. You have no right to be mad at anyone but yourself. The smart thing to do would have been to NOT sell the bike and make the person go to a ATM machine and get the rest of your money. You set yourself up, because in the back of your mind you knew there was a small chance you wouldnt get your money from him and you came to terms with that and let the bike go.

Get over it already!!

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

You didnt answer wether or not you contacted him, emailed him or asked him to pay you or what he said...

If your gonna out the guy for forgetting about 20 bucks on a jawa, then thats shitty.

If you called him or emailed him and he said go fuck yourself, then by all means do what ya gotta do. For whetever good it will do.

Its not like he's gonna sting the rest of us on a jawa purchase.

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

OK another way that I really like to think about money owed. How much would you pay to never hear from or see this person and actively have them avoid you. $20 is a bargain.

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

You don't forget about money you owe!

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

All im saying is that if you trust someone from this board because they are on here you need to rethink that if they arent branch members.

Even branch members get all wierded out and do fucked up shit every once in a while, but fucking someone 20 dollars for a jawa is likely written into thier club rules as an instant out. Maybe even just the jawa part.

This is the internet, and people are gonna be internet people here. Good bad......and Jawa.

Ooogh...

Re: Ripped Off By Fellow Moped Army Member!

post the name so we can laugh at him for paying that much. and yeah i hate people who rip u off no matter how much it is it sucks
